John Federici And Peter Breitlander
Founders and Managing Partners
KRAIN Real Estate
Integrity and expertise are two of the most valued qualities in a real estate broker, and both have been at the forefront of KRAIN Real Estate, one of Chicago’s premier boutique brokerages.
With more than 30 agents in two locations and 300 closed sales in 2012, founders John Federici and Peter Breitlander have thrived in the toughest real estate market since the Great Depression thanks to their diverse, intertwining skill set. Breitlander was a top-producing agent with an important brokerage, while Federici was a successful loan officer, and as they explain it, their unique backgrounds – and a combined 25 years of experience – have contributed to their successful partnership.
“We are supportive and loyal business partners to each other and to our agents,” they say. “We complement the other’s personality traits, which has led to a harmonious and prosperous partnership.”
Also integral to KRAIN’s success has been Federici and Breitlander’s approach to their business, one focused more on quality, long-lasting relationships than on immediate returns.
“We take a sincere interest in the lives of those around us – we have an endless list of steakhouse receipts to prove it,” they say. “We have never steered any one person in the wrong direction to make a quick buck.”
And with their significant base of referrals throughout both Chicago and DuPage County communities, they are looking to continue growing their business in an organic, referral-based way.
